A Classic Story: The drummers former lead singer stole his long-time girlfriend and broke up the band.

The result: theRev.

The trio of Erik Eimiller, Frank Nicastro, and Bob Calabrese joined together 7 years ago. Then, in 2004, they added the sensationally provocative Erik Johannesen as their new front man, along with the multi-talented Craig Trenchard, forming a Rock 'N' Roll band that has the makings of something truly great.

Based out of Buffalo, N.Y., theRev embodies what most bands strive for. They have a truly electrifying stage show to go along with their intelligent and radio friendly song writing style. It has an edge and attitude that is rarely captured by an independent band. And they top it off with a true rock star image to complete the package. This band has what it takes to make a big time splash in the music industry.

While winning Top New Band at the 2005 Buffalo Music Awards, theRev has enjoyed averaging 100+ shows a year.

Some notable performances include:

-Edge 102.1 Live @ The Studio - Oktoberfest, Ellicottville - Rock for Food Festival - The Guitar Festival - Taste of Buffalo - St. Patricks Day Parade - Spring Festival, Allegheny State - Spring Festival, RIT

With their debut album entitled 'Flesh Capsule Mess', theRev has garnished thousands of hits on their myspace page, obtaining thousands of fans nationwide.

theRev has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with:

The Black Eyed Peas - G. Love and Special Sauce - The Ataris - The Pilfers - Marty Casey and LoveHammer - Hanson-The Trews - The Headstones

theRev has gained the reputation of being one of the hardest working bands from the state of New York. Their fans and employers have learned that when theRev takes the stage, anyone within earshot will recognize that this band refuses to leave anyone unsatisfied.
